The 2011 Utah Section PGA Spring Meeting
The Utah Section PGA officially kicked off its 2011 golf season by holding the Utah Section PGA Membership Meeting and Pro-Pro event on April 18. Alpine CC was the host site for these events for the second straight year. Host Professional Kent Easton and his staff were great hosts with everything except the weather! Although we really can't expect Alpine to change the weather for our event the entire
Utah area is looking for someone to turn off the rain. Hopefully by the time you read this the
Utah golf season will be in full swing and the potential for widespread flooding will be reduced.
The Spring Meeting was a great success. It included a presentation from Mike Bailey of the USGA for a $10,000 grant for the Utah Junior Golf Foundation. The Utah Section PGA Board of Directors is extremely excited about the programs that can be created and the kids that can be helped with this generous grant.
The meeting also included a presentation form First Tee-
Utah. Henry Sandals, First Tee Western Regional Manager reacquainted the membership with the First Tee Program. Former Utah Jazz President will be managing the reformed Utah Chapter of First Tee.
District 9 Director Ron Dunham was able to update Section Members on governance issues like the MSR policy status as well as introducing the new Boston Consulting marketing research for the Golf 2.0 Strategic Plan.
Utah Section President proudly reviewed the new Utah Section PGA Website with the membership. An upgraded website has been in the works for a long time and the final produce seems to be meeting or exceeding most of the members' expectations. It will go a long way in reconnecting and communicating with both the membership and the local golf community.
